Had he never gotten injured, I'd believe this. However, due to him whining about not being mentally ready to make a comeback has proven this point to be false.
Great players are always mentally focused. Never mind the severity of an injury, how hard you flop or how much help you have. The likes of Kobe and LeBron are laughing at you.
If LeBron blew out his fu*kin knee you don't think he wouldn't sit a year? The same n*gga who talking about taking a paycut to get a 4th superstar to help further "secure his rings" of the future? You really think he wouldn't have said fu*k everyone like he did to Cleveland, and sat out an entire year, to secure his CAREER? And making sure you come back 100% with no hiccups, doesn't mean you lost focus, it means you got the big picture of wanting to compete long term, and not fade out for foolish fans who want you to come back prematurely chasing a "ghost" in michael jordan. If Rose wins a ring, this will be touted as the best decision ever, and will be the new BLUEPRINT on how to recover from an ACL. Take a full year off.
The fact that you think LeBron has ever showed at ANY POINT in his career to be above that, the likes of LeBron shouldn't be mentioned. Kobe I can see, LeBron No.
